|Woman Writing a Letter (1655) by Gerard ter Borch|
Sometimes, sitting down to write a letter can be a daunting task, especially if you’re new at letter
writing or if you’re writing to someone you don’t know too well. In honor of National Card and Letter Writing Month (aka National Letter Writing Month), here are a few letter writing topics to get you started:
* Describe your surroundings. Tell your letter’s recipient about the town you live in, your house, your room, your school, etc. What’s your commute to work/school like? What do you see when you look out your window?
* Talk about the weather. It’s not as cliché as it sounds, especially if you’re writing to someone who lives in a completely different environment than you or if your area has recently experienced some unusual or noteworthy weather.
* Share your opinion of your favorite band or author or movie. Explain why you like what you like and what you don’t like.
Remember to ask your penpal some questions, too. You want to give them something to write back about!
